National League – On Saturday 14th September, Peebles RFC – sponsored by Stobo Health Spa – have their first home fixture in their 2019/20 Tennent’s National League 2 campaign when Glasgow Accies are the visitors to the Gytes . The coaches will be hoping for a win to get the home campaign off on the right note following the good away win last week in Aberdeen. The match will be preceded by a lunch for former players and committee volunteers in the Eastgate clubrooms – the match kicks off at 3:00pm. The volunteer ladies will be back in operation again with their selection of hot and cold drinks, and their delicious home baking much appreciated by home and away fans alike.
Last week Peebles RFC – sponsored by Stobo Health Spa – opened their 2019/20 Tennent’s National League 2 campaign in Aberdeen with a fixture against newly promoted Gordonians. To the delight of the coaches and travelling support they returned with a win by 18 – 10 under their belts to set them up for tomorrow’s home fixture.
